The Oregon Health Authority on Sunday announced one new death from COVID-19 and 200 new cases.

Vaccination rates in Oregon continued to fall, with the seven-day average number of doses dropping more than 8% from June 19 to 20.

Governor Kate Brown announced earlier this month that Oregon would end mask and distancing requirements when 70% of adults receive at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. As of Friday, 68.5% of adults in Oregon had received at least one dose, leaving only 51,616 people in need of vaccines to reach the threshold, according to the Oregon Health Authority.

Oregon won’t be able to hit that target by Monday, when Brown initially targeted the state to hit the metric. With the number of daily doses of vaccine administered declining rapidly, Oregon may also not reach that metric by the time Brown’s COVID-19 emergency order expires on June 28.

Vaccines: Oregon reported 10,006 newly administered doses, including 5,675 on Saturday and the remainder of the preceding days. The average number of doses administered over seven days is now 12,724 doses per day.

Where new cases are by county: Baker (1), Benton (5), Clackamas (19), Clatsop (5), Columbia (5), Crook (1), Curry (3), Deschutes (13), Douglas (6), Harney (2), Jackson (6), Jefferson (1), Joséphine (10), Klamath (1), Lane (19), Linn (9), Marion (21), Multnomah (42), Polk (4), Union (3), Washington (21), Yamhill (3).

Who is dead: Oregon’s 2,754th death is a 74-year-old Lane County woman who tested positive on May 22 and died June 18 at PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Medical Center in RiverBend. She had underlying conditions.

Hospitalizations: 149 people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 are hospitalized, down six from Saturday. That includes 35 people in intensive care, up four from Saturday.

From the beginning : Oregon has reported 206,774 confirmed or suspected infections and 2,754 deaths, among the lowest per capita numbers in the country. To date, the state has reported 4,306,340 doses of vaccine administered, fully immunizing 2,102,735 people and partially immunizing 249,690 people.
